Public Library

Get lost in a good book. Join a writing group. Drop-in for toddler playtime. Download ebooks and audiobooks. Make connections with like-minded residents.

These are the joys of the public library. Penticton’s Library Service dates back to 1909. It has grown from a book stock of 500 to the present collection of 130,000 in addition to a growing volume of digital content.
